to do that. because he will be hit again with big spending and more deficits if he proposes anything. >> and playing the republicans' game. chris: ok. let's look at what could be the key to everything. ohio. and you've written about it. every winning republican has carried ohio. and joe, your magazine, "time" magazine has a big spread on it this week. why hoeup will decide the election -- ohio will decide the election and your ohio poll has obama up five points. the gender gap is big in ohio. obama up in 19 points among women. and another fascinating thing obama gets 43% of the wheat vote, higher than in most states. is it all about the auto bailout, smart move politically? >> it is all about the auto bailout. the chevy cruise which is assembled in ohio has ohio parts. down to the seat covers. and everybody knows that the alternative to the auto bailout would have been 13%, 14% unemployment in that state. chris: is there a national positive for him on the auto front or is it just in a couple of states, wisconsin, obviously michigan, those kind of mi western industrial statse? >> coal
to get a broader deficit in place combining the tax cuts, extending the bush era tax cuts? umax. buerkle: the house voted with bipartisan support. we don't know what the regulation is going to be coming down type. it will disparately affect the middle class or it will affect all americans in an economy that is so fragile. it will be a mistake to raise taxes. the last congress in 2010 knew that. we don't raise taxes when the economy is fragile. it will impact businesses and job creation and what we want to do is encourage them and help them grow so they can hire and get our economy back on track. >> moderator: sea would get us back on track for now and beyond? buerkle: public. rozum: i would support progressives marginal tax rates on the top 10%. those that have done well in our economy in the past 40 years. i support the eisenhower rates. with the eisenhower rates we could raise $1.2 trillion people need to be put back to work with money in their pockets. i also support cutting the military budget by 50%. we can protect small businesses and farms by not raising taxes. when we get over a
in additional spending. lots of things, wanting to balance a budget, the annual deficit runs between one and $1.5 billion annually. i will start with you, bill. even with obama and his foreign policy, spending keeps going up. >> some folks don't talk about this in a great way. it is the kind of thing where most people -- [inaudible] you don't want to approach it strictly from a numbers basis. by the same token, throwing money at national security and problems it's not necessarily something that's going to solve the problem. >> unless you're ben bernanke. [laughter] does because it comes down the pipe -- [inaudible] right now we have a situation where the pentagon is saying that we don't need as much money as mitt romney is proposing. that it's not necessary, number one. they are not lugging the restraint, but there is a general attitude that we have to do more with less, let's put our heads together and figure out how to do that. a great panic that this is going to make us a third-rate military. so right now it seems like there is room to cut where you can. they have a stake in the matter to te
cuts. but the deficit situation has now grown so bad that there's just no appetite for further borrowing at this time. >> maya macguineas runs the committee for a responsible federal budget, a bipartisan group that lobbies congress. she says uncertainty about how the government will deal with the deficit and the huge national debt is inhibiting employers from hiring. >> in the business world, there's over $2 trillion of cash sitting on the sidelines that could be used to grow the economy, make investments and create jobs. but it's not going to be invested until people know what to expect going forward in the economy. and that's why you need some kind of stability that would come from a big debt deal to help bring that about. >> in fact, unless there is a grand bargain on taxes and government spending by the end of the year, by some estimates, another 2 million people could lose their jobs beginning early next year. that's when the nation would drive off the so-called fiscal cliff. if that were to happen tax rates would go up for nearly every single income group. taxes on invest
about cutting federal spending and reducing the federal deficit. i will let for both of you to talk about programs are spending in the 17th district that he would be willing to sacrifice and help lower the federal deficit. 25 jobs -- doubling in the bridge >> the budget is the defining issue. i see it as getting down to priorities. we obviously have a budget problem. we have to balance our budget. how are we going to do it? on the backs of seniors? as my opponent opposes, where it would charge those of medicare and extra six to $400 a year. i talk to people all over this district. they cannot afford an additional $6,400 out of pocket. are we going to do it on the backs of workers such as those upton to freeport to jobs are getting set to china? because there are tax incentives to do that? or are we going to continue to give tax breaks for big oil at the expense of middle class families that are going to be asked to pay $2,000 more under the mayan budget plan that my opponents supports. -- under the ryan budget plan that my opponent supports. $100 billion and a savings every year. th
first order of business is going to be to get our deficits and debt under control. and the good thing is is that there's a forcing mechanism. the bush tax cuts end at the end of the year. we know that we've got the sequester looming that's taking a machete to something as opposed to a scalpel. and after the election, i think that both democrats and republicans have to step back and say, you know what? this is something that the country wants to solve. if i've won, then i believe that's a mandate for doing it in a balanced way. we've already made a tril dolli dollars worth of cuts. we can make cuts. look at how to deal with health care cots under medicare and medicare in a speeerious way, b we're going to also need revenue. we kind of settle on the big question, how much government are we going to have, and how are we going to pay for it, then a lot of the other stuff falls into place. >> can you get medicare done? >> i think we can. >> because republicans demagogue it. democrats demagogue it. everybody's demagogued it through the years. can you go to the republicans and say, guys, we'
doubled the deficit. not remotely true. he was headed at $1.2 trillion deficit, now a $1.1 trillion deficit. it is less. it is a god damn lie! but the rest of the media goes i can't do that. i can't tell the american people reality. here's what i'm worried about. i'm worried about that we're in an iraq kind of situation here. what do i mean by that? before the iraq war the republicans kept insinuating oh, my, saddam hussein iraq, weapons of mass destruction 9-11 iraq. about 70% of the country thought that saddam hussein was personally responsible for 9-11. if i thought that, i would want to invade iraq, too but he wasn't! he wasn't! so the american people were deceived and who helped to deceive them? the american media by calling everything neutral. while the republicans say this and the democrats say that. and now we have one side that lies all the time. systematically and what does the media do? they say this and other guys say that. no. it's not true. the republicans lie professionally. they do it all the
ran deficits. when daniels came into power on budgets you helped to write, indiana was $700 million in debt and had a deficit of $820 million. the facts are stubborn things. i would like to know, how are we going to mature and preserve the fiscal integrity of indiana? >> if you would have spent the last 12 years in india rather than in congress you would know your budget has to be balanced. i balanced and produced balanced budgets. i find it almost laughable that a united states congressman would lecture anybody about fiscal responsibility. you voted not once, not twice but five times congressman. you voted and the results increased our deficit by 200 billion, billion with a b dollars. >> find a key governors races from across the country on c- span, c-span radio and c- span.org/campaign2012. host: we turn our attention now to the history of the october surprise. or events that happened before an election. our guest is joining us from their studios in washington you wrote that the october's surprise is a long story and mostly exaggerated history. so, why we have october surprises an
, asked the wealthiest americans to pay a little bit more. so we could reduce our deficit and invest in the skills and ideas of our people. and you know, at the time the republican congress and a senate candidate by the name of mitt romney vote -- they said that bill clinton's plan would hurt the economy and kill jobs. does that sound familiar? that's what they said. it turns out their math was just as bad back then as it is now. because -- because by the end of bill clinton's second term, america had created 23 million new jobs and a incomes were up and poverty was down, and our deficit had turned into a surplus. so wisconsin, we know what ideas work. we know our ideas work. and we know that their ideas don't work. we know it. and the reason we know it is we just tried it a few years ago. after bill clinton was out of office, they tried their ideas. we tried giving big tax cuts to the wealthiest americans. we tried giving insurance companies and wall street a free rein to do whatever they play. what we got is falling incomes, record deficits, slowest job growth in 50 years and an ec
energy. reducing the deficits by cutting where we can and asking the wealthy to pay a little more and ending the war in afghanistan so we can do nation building here at home. that's the right path. so, read my plan. compare it to governor romney's and decide which is better for you. >> the ad and the plan called a new economic patriotism has a fact about a second term for president obama. almost immediately after the election, the president will be confronted with a political crisis, the fiscal cliff, the bush tax cuts combined with $1.2 trillion in cuts mandated by last year's debt ceiling deal. the plan doesn't tell us about how to navigate the political terrain. he was more forthcoming with the register in iowa. we'll talk about it in a sec. elise is back with us at the table. first of all, the plan thing. the plan thing always polls well particularly with undecided voters. if you ask them what they want, they want a plan. romney has a plan. he's been talking act what he's going to do. he's loose on details. he's been talking commitments. barack obama has a four-year record and
and warned. >> now, deficit. big issue for a lot of voters this election season. we know that governor romney has said in the third debate that u.s. is on track to follow greece, that america is the next greece. is this just really hot rhetoric or is it likely? >> it was a wonderful little sound bite, wasn't it? if obama gets elected, u.s. is the next greece. it's just hyperbole the differences between the u.s. and greece are so enormous that it doesn't really bear really fair comparison. not only because the u.s. has got the dollar, which is the world's largest reserve currency and largest market and growing at 2% and employment at 7.8%. all these issues. what the governor is talking about, of course, is debt and deficits. and the very high level of u.s. debt, which at some point is going to have to be addressed. whoever gets elected to the white house, whichever party takes the house and the senate, they are going to have to deal with the debt crisis. >> now, also got a chance to ask richard about his stateside train trip through the u.s. talked to voters from chicago through iowa and utah
; boosting american-made energy; reducing the deficits responsibly by cutting where... we can, and asking the wealthy to pay a little more. and ending the war in afghanistan, so we can... do some nation-building here at home. that's the right path. so read my plan, compare it to governor romney's... and decide which is better for you. it's an honor to be your president... and i'm asking for your vote... so together, we can keep moving america forward. i'm barack obama and i approve this message. >>> donald trump is back. mitt romney thinks that will help? that's next. ♪ ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] don't just reject convention. drown it out. introducing the all-new 2013 lexus ls f sport. an entirely new pursuit. >>> the land of falsehoods and extreme ideas. you just passed into the republican zone. >> that's right. a lot of folks on the right have entered an alternate universe, called the republican zone. a bizarre world that there is no resemblance to reality at all. did you know that michael bloomberg endorsed mitt romney yesterday? of course, you and i know that the mayor actually endo
to help the middle class. [applause] we know what is going to grow jobs, reduce the deficit. and let me tell you, what governor romney is offering eight it. it is not it. giving more power back to the biggest banks is not changed. leaving millions without health insurance, that is not changed. . a another $5 trillion tax cut that favors the wealthy, that is not change. [applause] refusing to answer questions about the details of your policies -- not change. rolling out a compromise by pledging the tea party's agenda, us. good luck to you. guest: thank you. host: a want to point to an editorial in bloomberg. that cannot from michael bloomberg, the mayor of new york. he writes that he votes for president to lead on climate change. he says the climate is changing how the increase in extreme weather we have experienced in new york city may or may not be the result it should compel all elected leaders to take action. governor bloomberg rates we need leadership from the white house. president obama has taken major steps to reduce our current consumption, including higher fuel efficiency stand
result in all kinds of new jobs. that has not happened. he said he was going to cut the deficit in half. that has not happened. the good news that we have somebody who is running for president that has the know-how. he has the experience. he has got the experience, the record, and he knows how to work with democrats, republicans cannot independents alike to address the challenges we face as a country, and that is why we need mitt romney in washington to fix what is broken and bring back the american dream. i see a uaw member here economy. autos. talk what go said barack obama that said were a few wars. one was about the auto industry. he said, you want to take those companies to bankruptcy. i supported a rescue package for the autos, but what obama said was not true. it was barack obama who took gm and chrysler through bankruptcy, ok? >> right? second, it was mitt romney who absolutely did provide for loan guarantees to ensure the warranties were backed up. that is what every fact checker who has looked at what obama said said he was wrong, he was not telling the truth. now, this is wha
's at stake in this election. now, change in the future where we reduce our deficit that's balanced and responsible. i signed a trillion dollars worth of spending cuts. i intend to do more. i'll work with both parties to streamline agencies and get rid of programs that don't work. if we're serious about the deficit, we've also got to ask the wealthiest americans to go back to tax rates they paid when bill clinton was in office because, as long as i'm president, i will never turn medicare into a voucher to pay for another millionaire's tax cuts. i will never allow the nation to be plunged into another battle over health care reform just so insurance companies can jump back into the driver's seat. and i will never allow politicians in washington to control health care choices that women should be making for themselves. so, wisconsin, we know what change is. we know what the future requires. we don't need a big government agenda or a small government agenda. we need a middle class agenda that rewards hard work and responsibility. we don't need a partisan agenda. we need a common sense
on november 6. when barack obama ran for president he said we will cut the deficit in half. the deficit is now $1 trillion this year. he has added 50% to our debt to the point that it has gone to $16 trillion. it does not -- does that is working to you? and when he pushed to the health care bill through, he said, if you pass this legislation, we will reduce health-care costs. the reduction will be about $2,500. it actually has increased costs by about $2,500. does this sound like it is working? we are in the right place. and then the stimulus package, when he said i want a trillion dollars of your money, he took our money plus the bar a bunch from china. he said let's put a trillion dollars and see what happens. he says today unemployment would be 15% lower than it is. that is 9 million jobs short. does this sound like it's working? it is not. what is even more discouraging is looking at what he wants to do over the next four years. it is more of the same. there are some exceptions. he has protected and our jobs and ensure we have the military second to none to keep the peace. i get to work wi
of our future, entitlement reform or the deficit. the effort to restore the tax rate at the wealthiest americans who have thrived over the past several years even as others have borne the brunt of the deep recession, that leadership temperature airline includes, and for who knows how long mitt romney who signed the pledge back in 2006. but now from this unlikely quarter, the most senior corner of our business leadership comes this conclusion. from jamie dimon to lloyd blankfein a group of over 80 senior executives at our largest companies have concluded revenue increases are necessary. david cote the ceo of honeywell and republican said to say you can solve this without increases in taxes is ludicrous. their acknowledgment that norquist is dead wrong and romney's to no revenue needed claim shrouded in his i'll tell you after the election how i will do a this secret. the political potency of the main treatment corporate leadership, many of them romney's own guys, telling the king of ceos and his republican puppet mast that their ideas just won't working shakes the very funddation of the
deficits when they propose $7 trillion in new spending between tax cuts for the well think and the pentagon spending for which they have no plan to pay. so saying you have a plan for the future doesn't mean you do. what he has is the one-point plan the president has been talking about, which is the same plan that got us into this mess in the first place. >> the main argument they're making, he did it in his opening remarks in the last debate and the closing remarks, is that more people are unemployed, more people are on foot stamps, more people are in poverty right now than they were four years ago, why re-elect a president who has a dismal record they say like this. >> the reason they're behind in this race, wolf, is because that's been their mantra from the beginning. everybody in this country knows where we were when this president took office and understands that we're in a better place now. we have more work to do. but the last thing we need to do is go back to the tax cuts for the well think, deregulating wall street, taking care of folks at the top. abandoning the middle class. that
he focused on obamacare which killed jobs. he said he was going to cut the federal deficit in half. then he doubled it. he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate, down to 5.2% right now. today we learned it actually is.9%. that is nine million jobs what short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. think of that. unemployment is higher today than on the day barack obama took office. [booing]. he promised to propose a plan to save social security and medicare from insolvency. he didn't. rather than he raided $716 billion from medicare to pay for his vaunted obamacare. [booing] he said he would lower health insurance premiums for the average family. by $2500 a year by now. actually by now they are now 3,000 higher for an average family. and gasoline, the american family now pays $2,000 a year more for gasoline than when he was elected. of course he also said he would work across the aisle. the most important issues. listen to this. he has not met on the economy or on the budget or on jobs with either of the republican leader of
for romney's deficit on the campaign level, and i don't think that's true. i think they're on a par or maybe even more of an advantage for democrats, when you count those outside groups. >> host: the caller also mentioned the electoral college, and because the swing states, florida, ohio, pennsylvania, virginia, nevada, some of these, have more electoral college votes than some of the other smaller states, and that the candidates are spending more time in these particular states, do you see a smaller hora -- or a larger ground game in states that don't get visited, state like washington, hawaii, california, new york, i mean, those -- texas, those states are already in one column, or their electoral college votes are so small, do you see a bigger ground game effort to make up for the fact that the candidate just isn't going to come there? >> no, your see almost no ground game in states that are not swing states. now, there are some swing states that are quite small, in terms of electoral votes and physical size, like new hampshire, iowa, nevada, both have only six electoral votes, but in the
that you were running the statehouse, indiana ran deficits. when mitch daniels came into power just a couple years later on budgets you helped to write, indiana was $700 million in debt and had a deficit of $820 million. you know, john, facts are stubborn things, and i'd just like to know from my colleagues on stage how are we going to make sure and preserve the fiscal integrity of the state of indiana? >> congressman, if you'd have spent the last 12 years in indiana rather than in congress, you'd know that our budget has to be balanced. indiana, according to our constitution. i've balanced and produced bipartisan balanced budgets, and oldly, these -- oddly, these you talk about, they were supported by david long and our lieutenant governor, becky skillman. i find it laughable that a united states congressman would lecture anybody about fiscal responsibility. you voted not once, not twice, but five times, congressman, you voted to -- and the results increased our deficit by $200 billion, billion with a b, dollars. >> find key house, senate and governor's races from across the countr
, for five of the six years you were running the state house, indiana ran deficits. when mitch daniels came into power indiana was $700 million in debt and had a deficit of $820 million. facts are stubborn things and i'd like to knoll how are we going to make sure and preserve the fiscal integrity of the state of indiana. >> if you had spent the last 12 years here you'd know our budget has to be balanced. i produce balanced budget t and they were supported by our own lieutenant governor. i find it laughable that a united states congressman would lecture anybody about fiscal responsibility. you voted five times, congressman, you you voted and the results increased our deficit by $200 billion with a b dollars. >> find key house and governor races on c-span campaign 2012. >> an update on hurricane sandy coming up at about 2:30 eastern which up until then with an election a few days away a look at new hampshire. >> fst past week we've been taking a look at nine swing states and today we put the spotlight on the state of new hampshire. with the small state up in the northeast corner holding 4 el
; building on our manufacturing boom; boosting american-made energy; reducing the deficits responsibly by cutting where... we can, and asking the wealthy to pay a little more. and ending the war in afghanistan, so we can... do some nation-building here at home. that's the right path. so read my plan, compare it to governor romney's... and decide which is better for you. it's an honor to be your president... and i'm asking for your vote... so together, we can keep moving america forward. i'm barack obama and i approve this message. welcome to the world leader in derivatives. welcome to superderivatives. >>> fema's about to run out of money. there are some people who say to it on a case by case basis, some people saying we're learning a lesson here the states should take on this role. >> absolutely, every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. and if you can go even further, and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. instead of thinking in the federal budget, what we should cut,
. so i don't think that -- someone asked me if those outside groups would make up for romney's deficit on the campaign level, and i don't think that's true. i think they're on a par or maybe even more of an advantage for democrats when you count those outside groups. host: the caller also mentioned the electoral college. and because the swing states, florida, ohio, pennsylvania, virginia, nevada, some of these, have more electoral college votes than some of the other smaller states, and the candidates are spending more time in these particular states, do you see a smaller or a larger ground game in states that don't get visited, states like washington, hawaii, california, new york, texas. those states are already in one column, or their electoral college votes are so small, do you see a bigger ground game effort to make up for the fact that the candidate just isn't going to come there? guest: no, you see almost no ground game in swings that are not swing states. now, there are some swing states that are quite small in terms of electoral votes and physical size, like new hampshire, iowa
, to also reduce the deficit. my vote is mack. host: talk about commercials and ads on this race you have seen. especially the past couple of days and what you have been experiencing. caller: there are negative ads on both sides. never know what to believe. you see all kinds of negative things. the democrats, all kinds of negative things, the republicans. but you cannot base your vote on that. you have got to get their policies, principles, platforms, what they stand for, if they are conservative or liberal, and then, vote on that basis. host: had a thing florida will go over all? caller: overall it is one to go for romney. the polls are showing a couple point advantage to mitt romney. nelson, the democrat is ahead of mack, but we are all voting for mack and help him. host: wisconsin, on our line for independents. caller: appalling about the woman from wisconsin, my state about the woman from a woma from wisconsin. they say the debt is being rolled over. he is not fiscally responsible. he was nicknamed taxing it tummy when he was here -- taxing tommy. he is not fiscally responsible. and i
's been most partisan in dividing and attacking. he also said he'd cut the deficit in half. he doubled it. he was going to get unemployment down to 5.2% right now. we just learned on friday it's up to 7.9%. that means 9 million more americans don't have work than what he promised. he also said he was going to cut your health insurance premiums by $2,500 a year. anybody seen that happen to them lately? no. actually for the average american it's gone up by $3,000 a year. and then of course he said he was going to save social security and medicare. came out with no plan to do either one of those things. in fact, he took $716 billion out of medicare to pay for his vaunted obama care. he said he was going to work across the aisle. he was going to work with republicans or democrats to get things done. interesting. you know, do you know how long it's been since he has spoken with either the senate -- the republican leader in the senate or the republican leader in the house? about either of the economy or the deficit or sequestration or jobs? it's been since july. i don't call that working across
the middle class. we know what is going to grow jobs. we know what will reduce the deficit. and let me tell you, what governor romney's offering sure ain't it. >> reporter: ohio still very close in the polling. rcp average got president obama up by two. a lot of argument bill offer who is winning and who is leading at least in the early voting. we won't find out how it goes until tuesday night or wednesday morning. bill: thank you, john roberts live in central ohio, just keys of the capital, columbus, ohio. martha. martha: more on that now. president obama has somewhat backed off of his claim in one-term in 2009. he said his presidency will depend on whether we would turn the economy around in the first term. here he is yesterday. >> we knew that our work would take more than one year or more than one term. face it the middle class was getting hammered long before the financial crisis hit. martha: just to compare his own words. that is not what he said back in 2009. listen to this. >> a year from now i think people are going to see that we're starting to make some progress but there is stil
neighborhoods as these sinkholes of need. they have all these deficits and all of these problems and we're just going to send resources after resources into the sinkhole in order to try to make them productive citizens and workers and family members ideally by the time they're 18 or 19 and that is highly disrespectful to very confident, capable, self-reliant kids but also it means we are taking their most productive years when they are early adolescents, crossing this boundary, who knows so much about what their communities need and what they are lacking and they are not shy about telling you the park is dangerous and they are more likely to get murdered their than play a basketball game, there are no jobs, the health care services are lousy. they can tell you what needs to be done and if we would have the confidence in schools to say we will help you make these differences and changes now when you are 14 or 15, you have a lot of energy and the law time on your hands, we have a school in the community, we will teach you how to make a difference and how to make this park safer, not just to clean
need a rainy day fund. you know, when we running up huge deficit. if something like this hits a bigger problem, do we have the money to spend given how indebted we are? but i think the lesson for politics is people generally vote for the candidate who is more orderly, who is offering them security. they got enough risk in their lives. barack obama was more orderly than john mccain. george w. bush was more orderly than john kerry. and so if i'm a candidate this year, i'm trying to reassure people i'm the guy who can help you out when forces much bigger than you come in and give you a big wallop. >> you said a minute ago, you're not quite sure where mitt romney's soul is, and i think a lot of people, republicans included would agree with you about that. is he socially conservative? is he the massachusetts moderate? is he a small-government conservative? does that trouble you about what kind of president he would be? in other words, if we don't know who he is now, should we worry about who he would be if he got into office? >> yeah. it does trouble me. it disturbs me about how many differ
the deficit. not remotely true. he was headed at $1.2 trillion deficit, now a $1.1 trillion deficit. it is less. it is a god damn lie! but the rest of the media goes i can't do that. i can't tell the american people reality. here's what i'm worried about. i'm worried about that we're in an iraq kind of situation here. what do i mean by that? before the iraq war, the republicans kept insinuating oh, my, saddam hussein iraq, weapons of mass destruction 9-11 iraq. about 70% of the country thought that saddam hussein was personally responsible for 9-11. if i thought that, i would want to invade iraq, too but he wasn't! he wasn't! so the american people were deceived and who helped to deceive them? the american media by calling everything neutral. while the republicans say this and the democrats say that. and now we have one side that lies all the time. systematically and what does the media do? they say this and other guys say that. no. it's not true. the republicans lie professionally. they do it all the time. t
